Started on atari, 2600 and 800xl. Life Force was my first clear thanks to that code lol. Started a fire tho. The real cement was poured when my professed love of life force caused a friend to import Salamander deluxe for my birthday in 1997. I was unaware of the japanese shmup market lol. Opened my eyes. I now have something like 26 Japanese Saturn shmups lol. Then dreamcast, then 360. Ps4 ain't half bad either, Jamestown+ is a lot of fun, and Dariusburst CS is great. Just ordered Ketsui!
My end goal is arcade PCBs and a blast city. Some day. After I buy hyperduel .
Im not really a 1cc kind of guy. I really don't woodshed shmups. I'll play enough to beat them, ....but I jump around a lot. I'll play 5 different shmups a weekend lol.
Lastly, my top 5 are likely
Batsugun, Dodonpachi, Battle Garegga, Mushihimesama Futari, and Thunder Force IV. Although that changes depending on mood!

Welcome aboard! Lightening Force (aka Thunder Force IV) is my favorite shmup ever, so it's always good to see more love for it.
